10 Amazing Penthouses Around The World
Penthouse is often associated with luxury. It’s no wonder since penthouses are usually luxurious and grand in their architecture and design. Eventhough it’s called an apartment, a penthouse is definitely more than that. Sometimes occupying more than two floors, a penthouse can be spacious or can be built atop of the building separate from the walls providing the home with roof access, personal swimming pool and even a garden.
Penthouses are often luxurious but there are more modest ones as well. They have amazing views thanks to their location at the top of the building and allow the residents enjoy the city, the waterfront and other types of landscapes. In some penthouses the apartment access can be private and the views simply vertigious. Take a look at ten amazing penthouses around the world.
